Volunteer Opportunities

Fit-2-Serve is almost completely volunteer-based. We could not do what we do without our volunteers! We value and appreciate each person who spends their time serving the community with us. 

Our mission is to equip others for works of service. We do this by offering plenty of volunteer opportunities through our Community Bridges programming, as well as encouraging students in our programs to share and lend a helping hand.

To become a volunteer please contact us directly.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are there requirements for becoming a volunteer?

Most of our volunteers are members of the community, parents, retired teachers or college students. Volunteers are provided instruction to lead and facilitate a station prior to arrival. There are no special requirements for our volunteers, but we may have some questions to ensure we are a good match for one another!

How else can I get involved besides volunteering for a CB program?

There are other ways of getting involved besides volunteering for the Community Bridges programming. If a volunteer would prefer behind-the-scenes work, most of our programs require prep work (cutting for craft activities, kitchen prep for Farm-2-Table, etc.).

If you enjoy reading, volunteer to read a story! Each month we go into the classrooms of the students in our Farm-2-Table program and read a story. We do this almost every Monday.

During garden season, F2S depends on volunteers to maintain our gardens. If you enjoy being outdoors, this would be a perfect opportunity to 'give back' to the community!

Can I do my internship at Fit-2-Serve?

We have provided internship opportunities to several students over the past years. However, it must be approved by your instructor, and you would be asked to meet and interview with the Fit-2-Serve team to determine if it would be a good fit for all parties.

Are there any open positions?

Currently, Fit-2-Serve partners with AmeriCorps to host VISTA positions. We have full-time positions available as well as 8-10 week Summer VISTA positions available.
